Gotta love the different sizes and shapes that teapots can take. This one is the Aladdin style and features a beautiful almost Carolina blue color. Maybe that is why I fell in love with it.
This is one of the many Hall teapots that I have in my collection and I absolutely love anything Hall. The company is located in East Liverpool, Ohio and is one of the premiere American ceramics manufacturing plants. Hall China is one of two potteries under the HLC Inc. brand, the other being Homer Laughlin China.
This teapot can be traced back to the 1930’s or 1940’s time frame and is in pristine shape. I love the shape of it and it is a great pouring teapot as well. Not all teapots pour well but the Hall teapots in my collection are all quality when it comes to “pourability”.
Hall teapots are stamped with a seal that helps to identify their age and value. I haven’t done much research because I just like this one but if it was worth more than I paid for it I would be happy.
I need to dig out all of my Hall teapots and group them together so I know what I have. Yes, I am unclear on what ones I have so doing Teapot Tuesday is a great way to keep track of them. But I honestly need to be more organized and intentional about keeping a catalog of them. One of these days….
Do you have any Hall china in your home? Do you remember a loved one using a teapot like this years ago? I would love to hear about it in the comments. Remember that each comment on any blog post this month means a donation to our Comments for a Cause – Folds of Honor.

I do love the Aladdin style teapots and this one is in a great shade of blue.A bonus if it pours well.
Yes! Pouring well is a bonus with teapot because they do not always pour well. This one is lovely on all accounts.
When I sold teapots at the kitchen and gift shop, customers often had us fill them with water and then try pouring the water into a cup to see how well they poured. Some of the teapots that came with china sets were often the worst.
This is a beautiful tea pot. I don’t know much about manufacturers etc. But I do like the color and form of this one. 🙂
I don’t really care about manufacturer either . I see a teapot and like it for it being a teapot. I know there are hardcore collectors who would argue with me about value, etc. but that is not why I collect them. I just like them!
I just want to know if you rub it before you brew tea in it, will a genie appear? 😉 Seriously, what a lovely color and shape that teapot is. I do not have any Hall china but I am familiar with it and Fiestaware made by Homer Laughlin.
I have never had a genie come out although I have tried. 🙂 Of course I have! I have Fiestaware dishes and several Fiestaware teapots. Hey–maybe that will be my teapot next week. Hmmmm.
Well, if a genie ever does appear, make sure he serves you the tea. 😉
This sleek teapot is a work of art. It’s one of my favorites among the many you’ve shown us. The Ohio connection makes it even more special to you.
Yes – agreed! The shape of this one is definitely fun and I love the way it looks. And of course you guessed that the Ohio connection makes it even better for me.
Pretty tea pot and I love the blue color.
Thanks, Judie! It is a really sweet one in my collection.
It is just lovely and my favorite color blue. Sadly I do not remember any hot tea drinkers or teapots in my family. They were mainly coffee drinkers. Some how I grew up drinking hot tea too.
Tea and coffee were both present in my house. I have fond memories of my mom making a pot of Constant Comment tea –that was a real treat. 🙂
